An unconfirmed report may have revealed the release date for T-Mobile’s latest LG smartphone, the DoublePlay. Athough T-Mobile has yet to confirm, we could be seeing this unusual dual-screen device next Wednesday, November 2.
The smartphone will sport a full slide-out split QWERTY keyboard, as well as Swype for easy text input. The DoublePlay will sport a 3.5-inch main display, in addition to a 2.0-inch sub screen, both of which can operate independently or in tandem.
Powered by Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread, the handset will feature a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 1GHz single-core Snapdragon processor. T-Mobile previously boasted that users will be able to send group texts and access cloud text on the device, which will allow them to compose and respond to SMS messages on their computers.
If the Nov. 2 launch date holds true, the DoublePlay will be accompanied by the release of T-Mobile’s HTC Radar 4G, which will be the carrier’s first Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone on its 4G HSPA+ network. The smartphone is said to pack a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 3.8-inch WVGA display and a 5MP rear camera.
Pricing for the LG DoublePlay is still uncertain at this time, though a similar unconfirmed report pegged the smartphone with a $150 price tag.
